Pamela earned her degree in Voice and Vocal Pedagogy, with a secondary focus on piano, from North Park University in Chicago, Illinois. Once she earned her degree, she performed all over the city as a soloist and chorus member in such places as the Chicago Symphony stage and Light Opera Works of Evanston, Chicago Cabaret, as well as an accompanist for many other Chicago performance venues and churches. She was also a judge and mentor for students in the Illinois Solo and Ensemble Competition, the National Association of Teachers of Singing Contests and the Bel Canto Competition, one of Chicago’s largest vocal competitions.
When Pamela wasn’t performing, she was teaching both piano and voice in her private studio and has done so for the past 34 years. In both instruments, Pamela offers a classical approach focusing on the fundamentals of technique, expression, phrasing and theory. She also uses her performance experience to help each student learn and prepare for their own performance.
In doing so, Pamela focuses on getting to know each student enough to meet them where they are on their own educational journey, allowing them to be who they are in the process. She loves working with every age from beginner to advanced and her belief is that success comes in watching each student grow in confidence.
Pamela most recently earned a Certificate in Music Wellness and Therapy from Berklee College of Music. She enjoys working with her students to use music as both an emotional and physical outlet through which healing, comfort and confidence can happen.
